Shadow and substance,
wonder and mystery,
spellbinding spinner of atoms and earth;
Soul of the cosmos,
person and energy,
Source of our being, we sing of your worth.
We are your image,
formed in community;
sisters and brothers of Adam and Eve.
You gave us color,
custom and history;
teach us to honor what others receive.
Naming the nameless,
Spirit of unity,
scanning the heavens for signs of your care;
God of the ages,
give us humility;
guide us to mystical union in prayer.
